fucoTHIN is a natural, whole food based supplement made with fucoxanthin combined with pomegranate seed oil, for a patent-pending formula that is naturally thermogenic. Thermogenesis is the process by which the body increases its metabolic rate, requiring utilization of internal stores of energy, such as fat.
What is thermogenesis?
Thermogenesis is the process by which the body increases its metabolic rate, requiring utilization of internal stores of energy, such as fat. fucoTHIN supports metabolism including that of white adipose tissue, without stimulating the central nervous system. In a human clinical trial, the metabolic rate with fucoTHIN was significantly higher than with the diet alone.
What is fucoxanthin?
Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (like lutein and lycopene), a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. It is the pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also participates in photosynthesis (the conversion of light into energy). It is found in several different types of brown seaweed.
Marine vegetables (edible seaweed) have long been considered among the most nutritious vegetation on Earth, and have been included in the diets of various Asian cultures since ancient times. Recent research suggests that natural compounds in marine vegetables can significantly affect fat metabolism and that fucoxanthin is one of the key ingredients that, along with diet and exercise, may have helped to minimize health and weight issues among Asian populations where it is consumed the most.
Fucoxanthin is the first marine algae-derived ingredient with clinically proven thermogenic effect. It is also known for its powerful antioxidant effect that protects cells from free radical damage. fucoTHIN contains an all-natural food concentrate of fucoxanthin from specially cultivated strains of brown marine vegetables grown in pristine waters off the Canary Islands and off the coast of Europe.
What are the benefits of pomegranate seed oil?
Pomegranate fruit seeds are the source of an oil that has a unique fatty acid composition. fucoTHIN provides a proprietary pomegranate seed oil standardized to punicic acid. This unusual fatty acid, punicic acid or conjugated linolenic acid (CLNA), works synergistically with fucoxanthin to support natural thermogenesis.
Who will benefit from using fucoTHIN?
Anyone who is seeking to manage body fat and support a healthy metabolic rate while following a balanced diet and a regular exercise regimen.
